So, farewell then Margaret Thatcher. Loved and despised in equal measure across these islands, she divided a country like no other politician before or since. She guzzled North Sea oil and left behind an enormous property bubble, millions unemployed and communities shattered and polarised. She made many people rich too and they will be forever grateful to her.
I never got the chance to photograph Mrs Thatcher. She was ushered from office just as I was embarking on my career in newspapers. By the time I got to cover major political events, she had been usurped. A shame, really, as I would have enjoyed getting close to one of the 20th century's most famous - and infamous leaders.
But like most photographers since her departure, I have been photographing her legacy. Trying to make sense of it and reflecting back some of energy which she used to further her own political, social and economic ends.
Maybe a fitting tribute should be a reflection of the three photographs reproduced here, from Ravenscraig, Monktonhall and Dundee? Steelworks, coalmines, social housing, all detonated in the name of Thatcherism.
As the song went, Bathgate no more, Linwood no more, Methil no more, Irvine no more. And the final verse: Thatcher no more!
